I have installed ubuntu 16.04 LTS on Haier Y11b Its touchpad is very bad at guessing tap while we move finger over it.

I want to disable TAP to click, unfortunately this setting is not there in settings there is no checkbox not even label.

I searched for solution, this is what I did.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wget gdebi
wget http://http.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/s/synaptiks/kde-config-touchpad_0.8.1-2_all.deb
sudo gdebi kde-config-touchpad_0.8.1-2_all.deb
sudo apt-mark hold kde-config-touchpad=0.8.1-2

But at the end it said that there is no synaptics touchpad.

Please note that it is too worse, that I had to attach USB Mouse, here is xinput list result.

engrwarsi@Journal:~$ xinput list

  • While I try to post it says that I can't post due to spam from my network and so on :( I don't know why! :( – Mirza Usman Jun 6 '17 at 12:53
  • Hello! Can you please try this command? synclient MaxTapTime=0 This should disable tap to click. – Gladen Jun 11 '17 at 11:06
  • $ synclient MaxTap=0 Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded? – Mirza Usman Jun 11 '17 at 11:09
  • 1
    Ok, can you now also use this command and edit the question with the output? xinput list-props 11 This should show more info about your touchpad in general – Gladen Jun 11 '17 at 11:11
  • I used the command and have edited the question! – Mirza Usman Jun 11 '17 at 11:15
